Rainy-day Knitting

I started making a secret project last Thursday, during the rain. I continued all weekend while it was raining outside. I finished the project yesterday. However, I have to wait until next week to show it to you. I don't want the intended recipient to find it on my blog. I will say that it is soft, gorgeous, and uses 1 skein of yarn. There was this much left after the ends were weaved in. Just enough to hold some live stitches on a future project, huh?

I am planning on making a second one for me!! Good thing I bought a second "just-in-case" skein. "Just in case I need more yarn" turned into "just in case I need to make a second one because I want to keep it". Haha!!

In other knitting news... I tried on my Wicked, and I feel like I need to add 1 more inch to the body before I add the pocket. Also, I missed a stitch while knitting the sleeves, (darn DPN's) so I have to rip back about 1 inch. This sweater is so easy, and really should be finished already. ARRGGHH!!!! Wicked mistakes all around.

Ummmm, just why aren't you magic looping the sleeves? I even pulled out 2 circs to avoid those things with double pointy ends. LOL I know your secret turned out lovely. Plugging my ears to hear you have yarn to make one for yourself. :-)

What a gorgeous color that yarn is. I'm clinging to the edge of my seat.
